Concentration Camp Memorial with a Private Guide and a Private Vehicle


The Dachau Memorial Tour will raise your awareness for the fatal consequences of the Nazi tyranny and for the suffering of millions who were persecuted politically or racially during the Third Reich period. You will see the prototype Nazi camp which was opened 12 miles away from Munich right after Adolf Hitler had risen to power. The tour includes the documentation centre, the remains of the actual camp and a 22 minute documentary film. In addition, I will tell you astonishing details that I have learned about in 8 years working on the camp site and talking with survivors, Dachau locals, SS relatives and school teachers who take their pupils on field trips to the camp memorial. On our way back you will hear about the role of Munich as Hitler's "Capital of the Movement" and you will see the site of the former Nazi party headquarters on Königsplatz.

Itinerary

It takes approximately 30 minutes to get from downtown Munich to the Dachau camp memorial by taxi. On the way you will get useful information on the history of Dachau, Munich and the Third Reich. We will spend some 3 hours in the former Nazi camp before we travel back to Munich using a cab again. There is a possibility to stop for refreshments at the memorial site. Please be aware that if your suggested meeting point is not near Hauptbahnhof (Munich Central) or Marienplatz (the main square in Munich's historic Old Town) the place of the Nazi headquarters might not be on our route to Dachau and we would either have to skip them or I would have to charge a premium to compensate the driver for his extra work. As an alternative to picking you up at your hotel we could also meet up at Hauptbahnhof (Munich Central) at the beginning of platform 21.

The duration of this tour varies a bit depending on the travel time from our meeting point to the camp memorial. Anyway, we will spend three hours at the camp site.

A Recent Review of this tour

To all my fellow travelers going to Munich, My family and I went on a tour with Stefan to Dachau and even though this is quite a sobering experience, Stefan was so knowledgeable and caring when it came to explaining what happen there that we were really grateful to him for the sharing of his knowledge. We spent several hours with him and he is not only well educated, he's funny and kind. I would highly recommend everyone going on any kind of tour in Munich with him. He makes for an enjoyable experience!
